A to Z challenge: P for the Publishing Pickle

Today we are all the way up to P, and today I'm talking about the emotional trap we get ourselves into with the publishing pickle.


  1. I have fallen into this trap. On both sides of this trap as a matter a fact. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. My negative voice is very harsh, but if it gets too bad, a few rounds of Dory (From Nemo) singing, "Just keep swimming" or in this case "Just keep writing" can be effective in drowning that voice out. For a while.

  2. The Publishing apropos.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I don't think I've fallen into that trap. My trap is considering everything I write to be rubbish. I heard recently that a submission had reached the short list for a competition, so I went back and read it - and thought it was terrible! (I kept that to myself rather than emailing them an 'Are you sure?')

  4. Cool video set-up. I've thought about doing this and may adopt something like it in the near future. It seems more personal.


I love comments! Let me know what's on your mind.
